Is your skin looking swollen and feeling dry and itchy? If yes- you may be suffering from eczema. Eczema is a skin condition characterized by these symptoms along with redness. When scratched the skin may break and develop a rash. Children are more susceptible to this condition as compared to adults. Eczema is typically a recurrent infection. Treating it with conventional medication helps subdue the symptoms but does not reduce the risk of it recurring. In cases like this, Ayurveda is often the most preferred form of treatment.
- Ayurveda is a holistic form of medication that does not address only the symptoms that can be seen but addresses the root cause of the infection. It has negligible side effects and can be prescribed to children and adults. According to Ayurveda, eczema is also known as Vicharchika. This is caused by an imbalance in the immune system. Thus, in many cases, it may be accompanied by asthma, allergic hay fever etc. An unhealthy lifestyle with excessive late nights, stress, physical, mental and sexual activities can contribute towards this condition. In addition, consuming high amounts of alcohol, coffee, spicy or sour foods and stale foods can be responsible for eczema. All of these factors aggravate the pitta dosha and lead to the collection of ama or toxins under the skin.
- Thus, to treat eczema, it is essential to pacify the pitta dosha. The first step towards this is to have a healthy diet and lifestyle. Avoid oily and spicy food as well as tea, coffee, aerated drinks, and alcohol. Processed and preserved foods should also be avoided. In addition, try eating your meals on time and avoid late nights. Wear loose, cotton clothes that allow your skin to breathe. When bathing use mild, herbal soaps and a soft towel. Yoga asanas such as Bhujangasan and Pranayam can also help boost your immunity and reduce the ama in your body. This can also help reduce stress.
- In addition, there are certain ayurvedic home remedies that could be beneficial. Neem leaves are known for their antiseptic properties. Boil 20-30 leaves in 4-5 cups of water and wash the affected area with the cooled decoction. You could also apply a warm paste of 1 teaspoon licorice root powder and sesame oil on the affected part of your skin. This may be removed after 3-4 hours. Above all, avoid scratching the area and keep the skin well moisturized.

A problem in the foot often results in rheumatoid forefoot deformity. The symptoms of this problem include pain and deformities in the foot and ankle. The forefoot gets symmetrically affected and the first rays give rise to hallux valgus, which drives the deformity of the toes.
Types of Deformities-
There are multiple foot deformities that can occur as a result of rheumatoid arthritis:
- Hallux Valgus
- Bunion deformity with problem at the MTP joint (Metatarsophalangeal joints)
- Clawing of toes
- Dislocation of the lesser MTP joint
- Increased plantar pressure
Deformities and pain are usually detected by a physical examination by the physician and at times an x-ray can be suggested for the same as well.
The primary goal of non-operative treatment is to make the deformed foot feel comfortable. The extent of the deformity is first diagnosed and then this treatment can be suggested based on it. It basically consists of pain control, shoe modification and medical management techniques:
- Wearing comfortable shoes to minimize the pain associated with the deformity
- Custom made or store bought inserts to offload prominent area
- Corn pads or paddings to protect bony prominence
- Specific devices can be used to eradicate clawing of toes
- Activity modification to manage pain better
- Physical therapy or stretching to improve joint mobility
Operative treatments are sought when the condition of the deformities is serious and the patient suffers from remarkable pain:
- Hallux Valgus is the most common form of foot deformity and can be managed with a surgery of arthroplasty, osteotomy or arthrodesis. Correction of the Hallux Valgus has good effects of controlling deformities and pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
- Procedure to correct clawed toes based on its intensity
- Bunion correction surgery for bunion deformities
Each procedure has its own recovery period and in most cases, it can be limited to a range of 6 weeks to get back to normalcy. After 6 weeks, physical therapy may be suggested to increase activity gradually. To gain full mobility it might take around 3-6 months, depending on the patient’s age and condition. Relief is generally noticed by the 6th week, but to get back to full recovery it might take months.
Common surgical complications can be applicable to operative procedures. There can be a compromise to the blood supply to the tip of the toes, blood clots, pulmonary embolism, recurrence of deformity. Such complications are to be addressed by the physician to reconsider the right therapy
Treatments for forefoot deformities are to be performed after thorough diagnosis and investigation. Corrective measures are to be taken to prevent deformities. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
